New Pacemaker Location
I have had a pacemaker since I was 8 (20+ years). It was in my abdomin until recently when it was moved to under my chest muscle and the leads changed to intra-venious. Trying to figure out the limitations I am going to have to live with now. I never let the pacemaker adjust my lifestyle, I played college sports and my leads seemed to do fine. I am very active and enjoy workout out, which I know is going to take a hit. They put the pacemaker under the chest muscle and you can't notice it at all, that may change since I am unable to do heavy chest workouts anymore. Just wanted to introduce myself. Any younger patients who have pacemakers in the abdonin area, I am happy to answer any questions!
Is there somewhere on teh forum to look into getting these in-vein leads changed one day? Since I am only 30, I am paranoid that when this operations comes I will still be very young, I have heard it is difficult at any age.
